Marco Borrillo vs. Luis Houed - Outpost

Thanks for posting that.

As if Marco doesn't already know, the weight and conditioning are a
big factor. I am rated 100 points above him but would give him 100
points above me if he were in shape.

I'm sure he's played Houed enough to know which ball placements work
best so I won't comment there beyond what others on the page said but
the other big factor that I noticed is that Marco doesn't stay down
after a loop. He's so upright that when the ball comes back his next
loop has a high arc and Houed just pokes it back flat with sidespin
making the next shot have even more arc to be safe. Staying bent over
through and after the shots would be something good to work on. I
suppose that goes back to conditioning to some degree as well as it
takes  more energy.

But overall I'd have to say that Marco moves pretty well for a big
guy.
